LETTERS FROM THE LIBRARY

NOVEMBER 2015

WHAT’S HAPPENING?

ALL GRADES: All grades K-5 learned about internet safety during the month of October. They also listened to the Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award Nominees  Mogie the Heart of the House, by Kathi Appelt and At the Old Haunted House, by Helen Ketteman.

K-1: Kindergartners and first graders learned about the parts of a book. First graders were introduced to the book A Book is Just Like YouAll About the Parts of a Book.

2-3: Second and third graders learned a little about order in the library in preparation for learning how to be more independent in finding specific books on the shelves.

4-5: Fourth and fifth graders reviewed the basic use of the library catalog. Mrs. Gylys gave book talks to all fourth graders, including our newest title in the library Crenshaw, by Katherine Applegate.


PROFESSIONAL: 
Mrs. Gylys and Mrs. Pattin attended the annual Washington Library Media Association Conference where we learned all kinds of new ideas to bring home to the library!
